Slow-cooking techniques for delicious dishes from the Mediterranean region, from a New York Times–bestselling cookbook author! With the combination of tradition, innovation, and ease that have made her recipes so popular, Michele Scicolone gathers intriguing dishes from every corner of the Mediterranean and streamlines them for the slow cooker. The range is eye-opening: from simplified and freshened classics like Greek Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta to Israeli Sweet and Sour Meatballs to Moroccan Vegetable Tagine to Coffee-Caramel Flan from Spain. Scicolone also serves up a profusion of fascinating lesser-known dishes: Creamy Polenta Lasagna, Port-Braised Chicken from Portugal, Spiced Frittata from Tunisia, and Bandit’s Lamb—as well as her own seductive creations, like Cannoli Cheesecake.
Savor the unforgettable flavors of the Mediterranean using a slow cooker! These 80 recipes are devoted to such iconic dishes as Beef in Barolo from Italy, Braised Basque Chicken from Spain, Bouillabaisse from France, and Spicy Tagines from Morocco. With a source guide for unusual ingredients and helpful streamlined techniques, these slow-cooked specialties are simple to make and even easier to eat.
Plug it in and Cook with French Flair “I’d bet that if French cooks could get their hands on Michele Scicolone’s French Slow Cooker, which is filled with smart, practical, and convenient recipes, they’d never let it go.” — Dorie Greenspan, author of Around My French Table With a slow cooker, even novices can turn out dishes that taste as though they came straight out of the kitchen of a French grandmère. Provençal vegetable soup. Red-wine braised beef with mushrooms. Chicken with forty cloves of garlic. Even bouillabaisse. With The French Slow Cooker, all of these are as simple as setting the timer and walking away. Michele Scicolone goes far beyond the usual slow-cooker standbys of soups and stews, with Slow-Cooked Salmon with Lemon and Green Olives, Crispy Duck Confit, and Spinach Soufflé. And for dessert, how about Ginger Crème Brûlée? With The French Slow Cooker, the results are always magnifique.
Finally a book that combines the fresh, exuberant flavors of great Italian food with the ease and comfort of a slow cooker. Michele Scicolone, a best-selling author and an authority on Italian cooking, shows how good ingredients and simple techniques can lift the usual “crockpot” fare into the dimension of fine food. Pasta with Meat and Mushroom Ragu, Osso Buco with Red Wine, Chicken with Peppers and Mushrooms: These are dishes that even the most discriminating cook can proudly serve to company, yet all are so carefree that anyone with just five or ten minutes of prep time can make them on a weekday and return to perfection. Simmered in the slow cooker, soups, stews, beans, grains, pasta sauces, and fish are as healthy as they are delicious. Polenta and risotto, “stir-crazy” dishes that ordinarily need careful timing, are effortless. Meat loaves come out perfectly moist, tough cuts of meat turn succulent, and cheesecakes emerge flawless.
